Rybakina unstoppable for the moment: serves Siegemund a bagel within 20 minutes...
Hope that she keeps it up in this match...

Second set a bit less straightforward, but Rybakina broke when it mattered (when leading 5-4).
So a clear 6-0 6-4 win...

There was a time when Zhuhai was meant to promote upcoming talents. Rybakina fits that description perfectly: 20y old, 2018-YE ranking was 182, now well into the top40 (and if she wins here in Luxemburg into the top30), played two WTA finals, winning one (maybe a second one here).
And she did all of that without playing a slam, a Prem.Mand and only one P5 (Wuhan - got to the QF)...

Yet she cannot play Zhuhai. So what is the point of that event? And then I I see that Kerber, Keys, Mertens,.. are eligible.
It should be for young players only (like -23y old)

Antonia is taking a medical off-court. I l guess coming through qualies and reaching the qtrs is too much for her gangly frail-like body. Will she give it up?

No and returns to eat a candy cane in the lst. However, Jello is playing well and not hitting wild errors, executing her ground game, nicely.

Ah.....anticipated match turning out to be a stinker. Antonia down 0-2 in the 2nd and not remotely competitive....

Loses by 6-1 scores in 2. Well.....good for Jello and it appears her hookup with Bartoli is bearing fruit for the moment.....

Well, a final between Ostapenko and Rybakina would be most appreciated by me...
And the perfect cherry on that cake would be a final between Bencic and Pavlyuchenkova in Moscow.

That would be the perfect end of the regular season; happy with all four as potential winners...

Congrats to Jello on her title today, dismissing Julia G. in 2 sets. Jelena didn't hit nary a DF in this match....a lst. Appears the pairing with Bartoli has been good for her at the end of this season (2 finals....Linz and Luxembourg). Bodes well if they are together beginning in January. Hope so.....
